Check out the IndieEye Film Awards podcast on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Podcasts where we'll discuss each month's submissions and winners!


If you’re reading this, you likely finished a very important project. You sacrificed your time, resources and probably your sanity, to finally reach the finish line. We at IndieEye Film Awards have gone through the same creative marathon and we understand how it feels. IndieEye is for filmmakers, by filmmakers.

IndieEye Film Awards is a monthly and annual online event which celebrates Independent U.S. and international films of all genres.

Our platform exists to discover those independent gems which deserve recognition. We love indie films - no budget, micro budget, low budget - WE ARE YOUR PEOPLE.

Not everyone has blockbuster budgets to work with, so we respect and embrace the power of storytelling with the resources available. Having been through the process ourselves many times, we appreciate the hard work and dedication required to complete an independent short or feature.

We select and award films in each monthly edition. Official selections are screened privately for consideration. Monthly competition winners are then eligible for our annual awards. Official selections and winners will receive laurels.

Monthly and annual selections will be listed on our website. As we grow our social media presence, IndieEye will create individual Instagram posts for winners to share.

IndieEye Film Awards is committed to supporting the creative community from which we came. Show us what you have!

  • I love this festival. The IndieEye podcast provided an in depth overview of my film, Letter from Bobeyan. Very rarely do you get honest feedback for a film, especially feedback that is pitched so that you can continue to improve as a filmmaker. Very chuffed to be awarded an Honourable Mention. Very much looking forward to completing my next project and submitting to this festival again.
